For 4.4.2, an updated guide is available here

For real GPe devices (not ones with a GPe ROM added on it after the purchase), NO code is needed, simply skip to "3. Unlock"



1- Register to Motorola website

2- get your Device ID
  • Put your device in fastboot mode (power off, then press the power and volume down buttons simultaneously).
  • On your desktop, open a command prompt or terminal, and go to the directory where you installed the Android SDK tools (or make sure fastboot is in your $PATH)
  • At the prompt, type
Code:
$ fastboot oem get_unlock_data
  • The returned string will be used to retrieve your unlock key.
Example: On a Windows Desktop, the returned string format would be
Code:
$ fastboot oem get_unlock_data
 (bootloader) 0A40040192024205#4C4D3556313230
 (bootloader) 30373731363031303332323239#BD00
 (bootloader) 8A672BA4746C2CE02328A2AC0C39F95
 (bootloader) 1A3E5#1F53280002000000000000000
 (bootloader) 0000000
On a Mac OS Desktop, the returned string format would be
Code:
INFO0A40040192024205#4C4D3556313230
 INFO30373731363031303332323239#BD00
 INFO8A672BA4746C2CE02328A2AC0C39F95
 INFO1A3E5#1F53280002000000000000000
 INFO0000000
Paste together the 5 lines of output into one continuous string without (bootloader) or ‘INFO’ or white spaces. Your string needs to look like this:
Code:
0A40040192024205#4C4D355631323030373731363031303332323239#BD008A672BA4746C2CE02328A2AC0C39F951A3E5#1F532800020000000000000000000000
3- Unlock
  • Check if your device can be unlocked by pasting this string in the pecific field on the Motorola website, and clicking “Can my device be unlocked?”
  • NOTE: If your device is unlockable, a "REQUEST UNLOCK KEY" button will now appear at the bottom of that page.
  • after you got the code type the following :
    Code:
    fastboot oem unlock <code>
    or for GPe devices :
    Code:
    fastboot oem unlock
    and wait your device to reboot !


4- Enjoy


5- to relock, (pointless, isn't it?)
Code:
$ fastboot oem lock
